2015 MLB Free Agents


All the GMs in MLB are looking at this list now before the winter meetings. Who will be buyers and who will be the seller before the 2014 trade deadline? There is a lot of starting pitching available and a lot of old catchers. This could also be the end of Derek Jeter’s career, at 41-year-old will he hang up the pinstripes? How big will Max Scherzer’s contract be?
